Comprehensive Examination (M.C.R.S.)


The master of city and regional studies (M.C.R.S.) degree requires a comprehensive examination used to assess the knowledge of the student with regard to basic concepts and methods used by urban planners. The examination may be written or oral and is supervised by two members of the graduate urban planning faculty. The oral exam lasts approximately one hour. While the primary focus is on basic planning concepts and methods, the exact content of the examination is determined by the two faculty examiners. A written examination can take the form of one or two longer essays or a series of short questions. This examination is to be closed book and taken in a school office or classroom. The M.C.R.S. comprehensive examination is to be scheduled for the last semester in which the student will be in residence at the school. The master of city and regional studies comprehensive examination form, outlining the process, is available in the student services office.
